The operative word is spring[s]. There are two springs to assist in lifting the door. One on each side. If your dishwasher is an older modell it is time to replace the springs because they are worn out.

How do I fix or replace the door spring in a Miele G6892 dishwasher?


Step 1: Get Access to the Door Spring Remove the lower panel under the door. Normally, two screws keep the panel in place. These screws are located on top of or below the panel. There are cases wherein you have to initially open the dishwasher door to be able to remove the screws. The door should then be closed in order to remove the panel.
Step 2: Remove Springs To remove the springs, the hook of the spring should be lifted from the anchor point. Use your fingers to do so. If there is a large amount of tension, it's best to use a screwdriver or pliars. Position the shaft under the hook and then pull it down. After pulling down, try lifting the anchor. To make things easier, try locating a leverage point. This should help the screwdriver force the spring out. Be certain to remove the spring from all of its anchor points.
Step 3: Installation of New Springs To install a new spring, you initially have to deal with the positioning of the lower spring hook. It should be placed within the first hole. Take note of the adjustment bracket when doing this. Follow the previous set up. If the spring needs more tension, try positioning the spring hook further towards the back of the adjustment bracket. The end of the spring for the counter balance of the door should be mounted on the door support. Find the slot on the support. Replace all covers and door panels. Test the door to check for any problems.

G660 door falls open


Hi.

The problem is either because the spring supporting the door half way up is broken or because the spring must be adjusted.

First perform a door spring adjustment procedure as explained at page 28 in chapter 10 of the Installation Manual.

Here Miele installation manual for the G660. The file is in PDF format.

If the regulation procedure does not do the job, then the spring must be replaced.

This video shows how to replace the spring (model and manufacturer are different-operations are similar):




The spring is usually sold as part of the hinge assembly.

To get parts or to book a qualified technician call the Miele support number listed on the owners manual or use the Contact page on your local Miele website. Here UK website: Miele - Contact Us.

Regards.

The door on my miele G481 built in dishwasher won't stay open it's really annoying that it keeps popping up when I'm trying to load.


hi,

what you need to do is slack off the spring tension on the door hinges. each side of the unit at the base on the plinth there is a screw with a spring symbol next to it. turn this anti clockwise to reduce the spring tension.

Hope this helps

Dishwasher door, too much spring


YES after you have the panel installed it will open and close much better the factory sets the springs on your model tight so when the panel is installed it can weight down the door after the panel is install you may have to readjust them tighter again

Door problem


on my machine there is a torx screw at the top left hand side. You need to open the door to see the screw which sits behind the off-white flange (look for a hole in the flange).
